17 & 18 Week Bumpdate

I can hardly believe that I am getting close to almost being half-way through my pregnancy! I am currently 19 weeks but have been so busy lately that I am finally just getting around to posting my 17 & 18 week update.

The last two weeks have been a bit rough around our household. We all got the stomach flu and then right after the girls got an awful cold. After many nights of soup, loads of laundry, and two trips to the doctor, I think we are all on the mend to health.

Next week we find out the gender and I am SO excited! I thought the girls were both boys but this pregnancy has been so different than the last I am making the same guess and saying boy. (knowing it will probably be a girl!)

Due Date: April 25th

How far along: 19 weeks

Size of baby: 6 inches and 8 1/2 ounces, current status is the size of an heirloom tomato

Total weight gain: 7 lbs.

Maternity clothes:

Wearing most of my normal tops but using the bella band around my pants but I bought some new maternity jeans during the black Friday sale. I got these and these.

Stretch marks: yep!

Sleep: great! I just need to go to bed earlier! Looking forward to sleeping in this weekend.

Best moment of the week:

Feeling the baby for the first time and starting the countdown to Christmas!

Miss anything: my pants fitting

Movement: yes! The day after I had the stomach flu I felt the baby move! Best feeling every after being kind of nervous about the baby being okay.

Food cravings: BLTs,  Special K cereal, strawberries, and cheeseburgers

Anything making you queasy or sick: Taking my multi-vitamins and this terrible taste I get in my mouth every night after dinner. Brushing my teeth seems to help but it’s awful!

Have you started to show yet: Yes!

Gender: Find out next Thursday!

Labor signs: Nope.

Belly button in or out: in

Wedding rings on or off: On

Happy or moody most of the time: both- its been a long week

Looking forward to:  Finding out the baby’s gender and possibly doing a fun gender reveal!
